                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hi there Aruak,

Oh, what a long and painful career it has been!  I am overdue to leave this place.  I
have suffered at the paws of far too many Bulldogs over the past few years.  Oddly,
I'm hearing that I will have a chance to develop a career on the Isle.  And with
priority, too!  Trust me, no one is more surprised than I.  My manager has some great
aimers already...what could he possibly see in me?

Fare thee well,
The Singing Bandit

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARUAK CITY games.  There were bitter words at 
IMMORTALS' guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
19th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week WAR-C-KERS went 0-4-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  
Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which ANIMAL FARM managed to post this round?  
I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  JEREMIAH JAY COOKE caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SKIRMISH and 
was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
JUMPIN' put down BAR-B-DOO, causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the 
process.  This time out MAGENTA MAGGOT made hers bid for the throne as she challenged 
THE SINGING BANDIT in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  
Although MAGENTA MAGGOT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious THE SINGING BANDIT.  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in ARUAK CITY seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ARUAK CITY, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is JGW EXPIRATION, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it 
was that spent the better part of last week avoiding JGW EXPIRATION.  Indeed it was 
JGW EXPIRATION.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after RON STEELE.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My condolences to GERFEL'S FRIENDS for their loss of a very 
promising warrior, SUPERFICIAL HITMAN.  SUPERFICIAL HITMAN went to doom before the 
arms of JEAN FELIX, a warrior of JGW EXPIRATION.  Perhaps even the strong cannot 
escape the vagaries of this world.  This week arena veteran SKIRMISH was slain, 
despite a 8-4-2 record.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One 
thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARUAK CITY.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a 
fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing 
only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

All -- Do Aruak City proud in the Baltimore Face.  The Heart & Soul Of Andoria awaits
your victories. -- Kennelworth

The Singing Bandit -- Congratulations on your DM Crown.  Duelmasters drink free at
The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth

JGW -- Great record.  Keep up the great work. -- Kennelworth

Lady Adie, Generalissimo Puerco -- Thank you for pointing out my error in calling
Aruak City = Aradi.  Perhaps it is my "old age" or better yet, my brain cells are so
full that they have reached capacity and I need more memory?  Aradi, while a great
place, is not The Heart & Soul of Andoria.  Your TC's and portraits are Aruak City
history and speak to the Andorian environment forever.  I stand corrected.  Health.
Humility.  Honor. -- Kennelworth
P.S.  Generalissimo, what a neat thought, and you are right, Adie is the one to
organize it.

Leeta -- I guess I could be woman's best friend also, but after that, perhaps not? --
Man's Best friend

Elinae Sliverbow -- I feel honored to have won that one.  Your style has been
difficult for me in the past, and I seem also to be distracted by beauty. -- Bull
Horn

Chuck Davis -- I didn't want you.  The stars were not right!  Now Kennelworth will
blame the 1-2-0-0 on me! -- Aries

Very nice spot, Lord Xiang.  Truly enjoyable.  (Yet sad.) -- Kennelworth

Paladium Haze -- Thanks for the bath.  I think we got rid of some of those critters.
Sorry you couldn't have hung around for more. -- Flea Bag

Fiona Starmantle -- Har, har, har.  Take THAT for Blue Eyes. -- Yellow Streak, Proud
Colorific

Fiona -- Only one shot?  Sure, you little women run in fear.  Not enough gumption to
take what is yer due, Bimbo?  Well, lah tee dah.  Yellow done put you back in yer
kitchen barefoot n' all! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Whassamatter, JGW, can't beat me, huh? -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific
Manager

Bionic Buffalo -- I am disappointed and humbled--which does not happen often.  You
handled me like a vaccine would.  Ouch! -- Black Plague, Proud (but humbled)
Colorific

The Singing Bandit -- If you are like Gene Autrey, The Singing Cowboy, I still love
you--even though you clipped my wings! -- Violet Vulture

Treestump -- Grrrrrrr!  I am the tiger and you are a lump of wood, yet you bit me?!
Some days you get the tiger; some days the tiger gets you.  Why did it have to be the
former? -- Turquoise Tiger

Aye, The Icelord, thankee.  Yer comments meant a lot ta this'n old pirate. -- Mino

Walk The Line -- So you kissed me and thought I would turn into a prince?  Are you
into that?  I am just a toad, albeit a winning toad. -- Tangerine Toad

Jumpin' -- Gee, my humps didn't even get a chance to come into play.  Too much
jumpin', not enough humpin'! -- Carmel Camel

Yellow Streak -- Ha, I knew it!  PPE was too much of a coward to send somebody other
than a block of steel for me to pick at.  Afraid to lose another of your team mates?
You're both cowards and bottom feeders. -- Fiona

PPE -- <delicate scoff> Me, on your $#!T list?  Whatever do you mean?  Oh, I'm sorry,
did I offend you?  When I return to the sands, I will make sure I target another one
of your ridiculous vermin. -- Fiona

Turpentine Elf -- A foolish challenge for you to go after Automaton.  Typical
ignorance. -- Fiona

Congratulations to Singing Bandit, Duelmaster and Lord Protector!  Well done, you
earned it. -- Adie

Aruak City -- Are you enjoying our spots?  (Already know the Consortium does, as

always.)  I hope we don't seem rusty.  I have already received praise from JGW and
Lord Xiang for my depiction of them.  Apparently I have a good eye for accuracy and
detail.  Thank you. -- Adie

Kennelworth -- You and I both know my Tuft Tuggers have a penchant for taking down
Consortium scum.  Don't give me that "whatever do you mean?" quip! <wink> -- Tankesh

Mino -- Oh, YOU want to get spanked too!?  Well, you don't generally have as many
scum, but I'll do it!  I don't care if you Consortium out number me two teams to one.
If I can whup one of ya, I can whup both.  <looking nervous>  I need a drink! --
Tankesh

JGW -- It's hard to knock you down when you can avoid us and keep challenging
commission teams running on maintenance.  That includes Krill Riders, Elfquest, and
both Scarlet Knights.  Yes that's right, you ever wonder why your challenges always
get through?  Your record doesn't look so great against anybody else except the
Immortals.  Which reminds me we need to tell Dartor to whip his team into shape! --
Tankesh
P.S.  What do you mean by Adeolar's teams?  Tuft Tuggers is her team, I just manage
it.  You haven't faced them.  <OOC:  I role-play Maniacal Tufts as being a shadow
team from Tarrgir Adie and Tankesh don't know has been overtaken by evil folks.  It's
a RPing thread.>
P.P.S.  I don't run Adie's teams for pay.  I volunteer because she's usually busy.
If you're laughing to say women are second class, you wouldn't be laughing much
longer if she melted you with a snap of her fingers.  I am much better at getting the
dirty work done however and I'd happily deal with you myself.

Lord Xiang -- I do not authorize Scribe vacations, definitely not... -- Adie

Lord Xiang -- You can't compare my team's numbers of kills without looking at their
total wins and fights.  Plus, many are Dark Arena kills, unlike the Consortium's.  I
like to test my warriors against those monsters.  And regarding 'standards', I said
ethical standards, not managerial standards.  You may have gotten a couple more wins
by killing, but did that lower your 'ethical standards' by not doing so?  That was my
question. -- Tankesh
P.S.  I have more to say and would love to respond to the 'translation', but my
reader is leaving on a week long trip.  Hopefully next time I can get to it.

Red Tape -- Hey, you may be an ignorant block of steel, but I sure learned a lot
beating on you!  Come again any time! -- Airk

Bull Horn -- Lucky. -- Elinae

Geeamos -- I like this weapon.  I think I will stick with it. -- Kiri

Cold Cast -- You looked rather ill suited to your strategy.  If you have any
questions, people in Aruak are very giving on advice. -- Kaelen

Sherry Little -- You deen a better nopaew! -- Donald Dunsen

JGW -- Thanks for all of the training tips and my apologies if they were accidentally
used against you.  If Skirmish hadn't sat out during my bloodfeud turn, he would've
been getting smurfed up old school style instead of Jean.  While Smurf's record isn't
that great, nobody has left the arena after meeting him without their share of lost
teeth.  In the meantime, please add me to your W/L chart so I can add it to my
resume. -- Your pal, SwineTiger, mgr. of Dire Fate

Kennelworth -- I can only hope I have your longevity in the arena and your success.
Congratulations to your one-thousandth win! -- JGW

Lord Xiang -- Do not fret, brother.  Seraphim and I will continue to hold the
Delarquan banner high for you.  To your quick return to this city.  Godspeed. -- JGW

Fiona -- Be sure to look me up at the Bulldog Inn again.  I'll have a drink there for
you anytime you wish to claim it.  I love a lady with your 'style.' -- JGW

Adie -- I will hope you return soon to get the matters of your stables in order.  I
think 'Tank-boy' and his mouth is a little out of hand.  He needs a lady to get him
back in line.  Nothing like being a hen-pecked man, right Tankesh. -- JGW

Sacred Wars Smurf -- Didn't know you came in that color. -- Jean Felix

Jeremiah Jay Cooke -- You are a long, tall cookie, aren't you?  A ginger snap, my
favorite kind! -- Rockie Dee

Natas -- How could you lose?  I never expected to one-shot someone with your record,
though I must admit the rush is pleasing. -- Jon Fleet

Rod Grizzard -- (panting heavily)  Gods. -- Windchaser

Wolfbrother -- Seems weird that you should be a golem. -- Koro Cloud

Bullhorn -- "Nice"?  What has "nice" got to do with a little peace and quiet? --
Windchaser

Patton -- I don't know, I can't remember that far back.  Probably both. -- Windchaser

Xiang -- I am my own authority. -- the Scribe

All -- I apologize for any early transgression against custom.  My fighters have been
warned to avoid over lethality. -- Michael Eldritch, mgr. of Steel and Silk

Chopstick Surgeon -- Eowtch!  You earned that.  I shouldn't have fought dirty. --
Scarlet Rose

The Scribe!?  Come on! -- Velvet Finish

Designated Slacker -- Hmm...THAT didn't work. -- Damascus

Kaelen Thunderheat -- I thought your type focused on finesse?  That was bloody
brutal! -- Cold Cast

Flea Bag -- I was hoping not to pair your style; you played it to a tee. -- Palladium
Haze

Dark Knights -- I saw your posting in Arkers.  What's your gig? -- Michael Eldritch

Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
Our newest Dark Knight disrespected?!?!?!  ARE THEY SERIOUS?!?!  If at all possible,
let's get over to 31.  I'm on the way.  Let's get 'em. -- Dark Knight Osiris
